We stopped at the recommendation of our whale watch tour and what a great recommendation. Sitting in the back deck was such a beautiful view, great beer selection and the food was fantastic - both my husband and I ordered the fish - he had tacos and I did the coconut crusted with the fresh fish selections of the day....

This is a great restaurant. Seafood is exceedingly fresh and our server (Luke) was very good. The view at sunset overlooking the ocean was beautiful. The Hula pie could easily serve 4 but the two of us couldn't not finish it.

Loved this place. Great food, wonderful location, excellent service! Our server was friendly and attentive and had a great personality which made our dining experience enjoyable. We were there for lunch and enjoyed the view of the ocean. Food was tasty and we didn't have to wait long even though it was busy. I definitely would recommend Kimo's to everyone.

Stopped here for lunch after reading reviews on Google. Lovely, friendly staff, fabulous view and great food. Fish tacos were delicious, Hawaiian veggie burger best veggie burger I've ever had. Make sure to save room for hula pie - out of this world - more than enough for two to share

Our first visit to Kimo's in Lahaina - apparently they have an affiliation with the Hula Grill in Kaanapali. Seated on the upper patio with a fabulous view of the waterfront and harbour. Prices were a bit on the high side but food was pretty good. Pulled pork lettuce wraps were delicious, as were the roasted brussels sprouts and yam... More

We normally take an annual vacation to Maui. Although we always stay at Kihei, whenever we bring friends or family along,we'll make the trip to Lahaina for lunch and/or drinks at Kimo's. The patio outside is a beautiful oceanside locale, and we always have a wonderful time with good food and drink!

This place has a great location with great views of the Oceans. The staff is friendly and our bartender/waiter Chuck was friendly and engaged in conversation. The food however was average at best. My Fish and Chips was made up of 3 small pieces Fish that resembled a chicken McNugget. The side of coleslaw was more like a tablespoon of... More

My Mom talked me into going to one of those chain restaurants on the boardwalk (Chart House or something). The view and people watching was cool but the food was at best mediocre and at worst my brother and son got food poisoning. Anyway, long way around to Kimo's which is outstanding with great views of the Harbor and excellent... More

You don't go to the beach without jumping into the ocean and you haven't done Lahaina until you settle down for a late lunch or early dinner as the sun goes down at Kimo's. Great views, great service and either an upcountry steak or fresh Mahi Mahi with atmosphere and nightlife. You may have to wait a bit - but... More

Right on the water and in the heart of historic Lahaina, Kimo’s brings you and your o’hana (Hawaiian for family) a casual, completely Maui dining experience. Renowned our “postcard” views of Lanai and Molokai, we offer a menu featuring fresh Hawaiian fish, prime rib, prime steaks and the original Hula Pie, Kimo’s has been a Maui must-do for over 30 years. The upstairs main dining room shows the architectural influence of New England on the former whaling port, with koa-lined walls, missionary-style furnishings and maritime memorabilia. After dinner, Kimo’s lanai becomes a very cool hotspot for tropical cocktails and Hawaiian music. Live entertainment is offered on weekends and select week nights.
